  1. The very essence of corruption.

  2. Hmm, which liar to believe?

  3. “I didn’t take the offer, but I took the offer.”

  4. Let’s face it, he’s just saved £150,000 in lost deposits; and, he’s saved himself the humiliation of losing another election by refusing to stand personally.

    I’m just not sure yet where he’s getting his kick back from this time.

  5. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.businessinsider.com/lord-farage-brexit-party-leader-says-boris-johnson-offered-peerage-2019-11) reduced by 84%. (I’m a bot)

    > Nigel Farage says he was offered a peerage by Boris Johnson's Conservative party days before he decided to stand down Brexit Party candidates in hundreds of seats at the upcoming general election.

    > "This is a Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson alliance with Donald Trump to sell out our country and send £500 million per week from our NHS to US drugs companies," Ian Lavery, Labour Party Chair said.

    > Earlier this month, Farage said that the Brexit Party would contest every single seat across Britain if Johnson did not ditch his withdrawal deal with the EU and form a "Leave alliance" with the Brexit Party.

  6. That smarmy cunt just can’t wait to affix the titile “Sir”/”Lord” to his name, can he?

  7. To paraphrase Frankie Boyle, the only people that would make him a Lord would be the Sith.

  8. Explain to an American please: What do lords do? Sounds like a ceremonial title.

  9. Lol conservativism ruined yet another country

  10. Uh isn’t that bribery?

  11. What does it mean to stand down a party candidate?

  12. If it happened, wouldn’t that be a clear breach of the Honours (Prevention of Abuses) Act 1925?

    But I forget, we aren’t allowed to have investigation of political lawbreaking any more.

  13. It makes me angry and depressed to live in a country of such ugly politics and politicians. Shame on the population who allow and even vote for this.

  14. So… he says Boris tried to bribe him not to run candidates, but he didn’t accept the offer, but he still did what the bribe was to entice him to do?

    Why… would he say any of this? I’m so confused.

  15. Wait, the rat fucker got an offer from the downing rat?

  16. And if it isn’t offered?

    And if it isn’t accepted if offered?

    And how stupid is it that this country still has this system in the first place?

    And if Farage deliver the promised goods either way?

  17. So we’re seeing the elite politics of Farage as he essentially tells us that he did what the Tories wanted for free?

  18. Man, I thought this was newsthump from the title

  19. Sith Lords always come in pairs.

  20. Bribing people with lordships… what century is it again?

  21. Remember when an MP who lied about an affair, he resigned? The name Profumo ring a bell?

    Pepperidge Farms remembers

  22. I’m calling bullshit on this one – this is Farage desperately trying to stay relevant and keep his name in the news.

  23. Hollllllly shit Britain is a stupid fucked up country for still having fucking Lords.

    Honestly, go fuck yourself.
